#Signs Express shows support for local athlete with 8m long banner

UK’s leading signs and graphics franchising company, Signs Express, recently teamed up with Sheffield Forgemasters, global engineers, to show support for Jessica Ennis. Both Sheffield-based businesses decided to honour the leading sportswoman by stretching a banner across the Sheffield Forgemasters’ Brightside Lane foot bridge.

The banner announces Jessica as the Sheffield Forgemasters International Personality of the Year. The heptathlete who won gold at last year’s World Championships recently broke the British record in the 60m hurdles. Following her success in the 2009 World Championships and shortlisting for BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year Award, both businesses wanted to publicise the achievements of the local sports star.

Signs Express was more than glad to provide its long standing customer, Sheffield Forgemasters, with the huge banner free of cost so that it could be positioned at a high traffic place. In the build up to the 2012 Olympics that will be held in London, the steel and engineering company has a local workforce that is committed to supporting Jessica Ennis.

Carol Morris, owner of Signs Express, said that they were very excited to be part of the production and installation of the banner. She is sure that the size and position of the banner will gain a lot of attention.
